Hi! First of all, Is the engine turning over. I have had problem with imobiliser on these cars. You need to see if you are, 1= Getting a spark 2= Getting fuel before you do anything else. Crankshaft sensors are another thing that can fail. You can pick up fault code readers quite cheap nowdays, and some times that is the only way to find some faults. The starter motors have a set of points in them that stop the engine turning over but usually when hot. If you say if it is turning over or not, I should be able to help you more...Den Actually, on all 4th generation Ceicas, there happens to be a notorious starter problem. It stemms from the problem of electrical resistance in the wires leading from the battery to the starter itself. It is suggested that a 12 Volt relay be set up directly between the battery and the Starter. I have a good idea as to how to install, but for specific instructions, go here Hope it helps. But before you go through all that, be sure to check the basics. Battery, alternator, etc.

It would have been built as R12. It would need retrofitted to R134a.

No. 87-89 Corolla might but doubtful. Celica is a bigger motor and it would not match up to the transmission.
